    Hey Everyone.



    I am new to crossbows, recently been on holiday and used a crossbow enjoyed it. Now I am here thinking I would like to learn how to make my own as I cant afford to buy a decent one and would much prefer to get my hands dirty so to speak and make a decent one. It’s a shame that in England it is illegal to hunt with any form of bow so that’s not an option unfortunately.



    If I ask stupid questions please bear with me as I am very new to woodwork as well. (I like to take on big challenges)



    Regards

    Dentonan

    Fair point, should be interesting to see what the learning curve is like from compleate beginner to an able novice. it is a real shame its illegal to hunt with bows Sad. That was one of the thaughts that got me into crossbows, ahh well it wil be a good skill set to learn and should be fun.

    Be glad to help any way I can. As for hunting you need to move to America as more states are allowing it.

    Welcome Dentonan there is abit of a learning curve but im sure if you take your time your build will come out as you have planed.

    Also at lest in the UK you don't need a lience just to own a crossbow, have to do a firearm safety course and be apart of a crossbow club then just maybe they will approve you for a lience.
    Thanks Ben
